The Many Benefits of Zamzam Water

Aside from being one of the most important rites of passage in Islam, Hajj and Umrah are wonderful pilgrimage experiences that enable visitors to discover the hidden secrets and beautiful locations of the holy city of Makkah in Saudi Arabia. One of the most astonishing features of the city is the Zamzam Well located within the Masjid Al Haram, a mere 20 metres east of the holy Kaaba.


Ancient mythology tells the tale of Abraham’s infant son, Ishmael, and his mother Hagar, who were left stranded in the desert, thirsty and tired, when a source of miraculous water sprang up at their feet to satiate them. This became known as Zamzam Water.
